Query

Kindly confirm if GRIHA accepts Autodesk ECOTECT software for Hourly calculations of Thermal Comfort compliance and Energy Modeling & Simulation in Criterion 14 (GRIHA Version 3).

Solution

No, thermal comfort calculations & Energy modeling of Ecotect are not accepted in GRIHA rating. An hourly calculation shall be performed using standard building energy simulation software (such as TRNSYS, Visual DOE, EQUEST and Energy plus, and so on) to predict the energy performance. An hourly weather file shall be generated using weather data, acceptable by the Indian Society for Heating Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE).
